Noise surveys at work
So, you think you may need a noise assessment but being a normal human being you have no idea how to go about it or where to start. Be proud of this as the alternative is to be one of us noise geeks and you really don't want that.
The pages in this section should give you all the advice you need to arrange your workplace noise assessments, whether you do them yourself or if you are choosing to use an external company. If you can't see what you are looking for try the wee search icon up there on the right, and if still no joy feel free to contact me and I will try and answer directly and add it to the site.
If you are looking for someone to come and do a thoroughly marvellous job for you then of course we are more than happy to help and the information on the noise assessment service is here.
The best bit of general advice I can give is to take your time and do any assessment in a logical step-by-step way. It's tempting to run around all over the place trying to measure everything as fast as possible but just choose one area, do that, then the next, then the next, and so on.
So you are thinking of doing a noise assessment, but what training is needed to give enough competence. This section covers training needs and details a couple of the routes available for getting certified.
And the final page is for those looking to use a noise consultant - these are the issues to look out for and the questions to ask so you are not shooting in the dark on it and know what questions to ask and what potential problems to look out for.
